The San Francisco 49ers officially placed K Jon Brown on waivers Tuesday.
This comes a week after Robbie Gould agreed to a contract extension, so it was clear that Brown wasn’t going to get the kicking job in San Francisco.
Brown, 25, originally signed on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville back in 2016. He was waived at the start of the regular season before returning to Cincinnati on a futures contract the following year.
The 49ers signed Brown to a two-year contract this past March.
Brown has yet to appear in an NFL game.
